A strong contender in 2019 Imo State governorship election, Senator Godwin Ifeanyi Araraume has urged his supporters and leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to ignore the speculation about his plan to leave the party, saying he was rather working seriously with his ‘’brothers and sisters’’ to deliver the South-east geo-political zone to his party and President Muhammadu Buhari.
Reaffirming his absolute loyalty to the party and President Buhari, Sen Araraume, who is a national commissioner in the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC), said he would not quit the APC for Governor Roachas Okoroacha, saying those spreading the ‘’falsehood’’ are afraid and worried that they have lost control of the party’s structures and are now resorting to ‘’falsehood and dirty propaganda’’ to discredit him.
Sen Araraume said that his current major assignment in Imo State is to reorganise APC and rekindle the hope of members that the party and President Buhari means well for the country. He noted that in spite of the anti-people policy and programmes of the present Imo State government, the party would win future elections at all levels of government.
According to him, ‘’I am one of the founders of APC; it is my party and I am very much rooted in it, both at the national, zonal and state levels. They are afraid that I am very strong in the party at the grassroots, state and national levels.”
